  • This Fort was built to defend the river Tagus between the Fort of Nossa Senhora da Guia, in the beach of the Guide, and the Forte de São Brás de Sanxete, on Guincho Beach, preventing landings in that stretch of the coastline with the small troop sheltered there. It is currently occupied by the military history Museum and also used as a cultural space.

  • Near the large dune Oitavos there is this small Fort MacPherson square with a few cannons erected in mid-17th century to defend the mouth of the Tagus River as an inscription above the door. Well integrated into the surrounding environment. There is also a visitor centre with uniforms and cards.

  • Place to see some more of the History of Portugal. It was built to supplement the Tagus, the coasts of Cascais.

  • Cost a lot for nothing. No English explanations, only 3 small rooms about some historical stuff with Fotos of the fort. Waste of time and money. Only go There if you really really really into something like that. Otherwise avoid!
  • It was really good apart from the miserable battleaxe who works there, telling our kids off for their rather loud battle re-enactments with the cannons. This might have been justified if anyone else was there.. at all.
  • Lovely walking
  • One day, it's almost closed! To tell the truth, there's nothing special about appearances! There's nothing around! In Cascais to Sintra on the half road, by the sea, sunset in this watching the sunset is OK! 😎

  • Strong finished in 1683, was done to save the entries in the Tagus River, beautiful and well maintained.
